Private Bass Guitar Teacher

Bass guitar is one of the most underrated roles in music. Many musicians, even bass players, keep bass too simplified by not exploring what it has to offer. I'm looking for that student who is a true beginner and has no identity in music yet or maybe the student who rocks out with his/her band and just wants a new edge. I teach bass players theory, how to play tight pocket grooves, and how to fly all over the fretboard to enjoy the simple but provocative instrument. I will teach you how to be the perfect compliment to your band, play solo and fill up space, as well as be the lead instrument if desired.

Private Bass Guitar Teacher

I have been teaching the bass for about 20 years. My intention is to teach the student his/her role as a bass player, starting with the foundation of locking in with the drummer while supporting the harmony and melody. Knowledge of the notes on the fret board is essential, as well as the basics of theory (understanding of music). As a guitarist, I can teach you songs and jam with you so you can get hands on experience of what is like to learn from a bassist and...jam with a guitarist! Learning an instrument should be fun as well as informative.

About Anthony

As a third generation musician, I've been playing professionally and teaching for over 25 years. I've had years of private lessons, graduated from GIT in Hollywood, taken college music courses and continue to perform, record, and teach music. YOU can have fun, learning songs that YOU like, or you

Best Guitar Teacher!

I am 20, and I have been taking lessons with tony for almost 4 month. He really is a great teacher. He really makes guitar easy to learn and always give you confidence about learning new things. He is cool and nice, able to get you through all kinds of difficulties of learning guitar. Give hime a shot, if you really want to play guitar. He is better than any Youtube or on-line stuff.

I have been seeing Jeff for about 3 years. I was an old folkie - with no time to practice - for about 50 years, but finally my wife bought me some lessons when I retired. Hit it off with Jeff immediately. He really knows the music I want - which in my case is classic rock - but he can do pretty much anything you need. Still give him 5 stars!
Richard R.
I immediately felt at ease with Jeff and it did not take him long to figure me out and point me in the right direction. Looking forward to many more lessons with him. I wish I lived here so it could be on a more regular basis. But happy with what I CAN get. Thanks Jeff!

My Aunty is turning 80 this weekend and I decided to learn how to play Happy Birthday on the ukulele as a surprise for her. Jeff not only helped me accomplish my goal but also got me started on other songs as well. His patience and enthusiastic personality made the lessons not ony productive but personable as well!!! 2 thumbs up to an awesome instructor!!!!!

Great teacher! Organized, professional and compassionate. Great video and audio quality in the lessons too :)
Pietro
I have sung professionally for many years. I first met Andrea as a session musician in Los Angeles, he could play anything I put in front of him so when it was time to learn how to play guitar I knew he was the right person for the job. He is just as skilled as a teacher. What's more he is patient, kind and a pleasure to be around.

Very inspiring!!
As someone that felt stuck with his level Andrea really helped me go to the next step.
Fun to learn from, super knowledgeable and very methodical.

David is absolutely awesome! I started with him in his home in Chicago and had to move to Los Angeles for work. We continued our lessons through Skype when I moved and have been doing them ever since! He is patient, fun, and EXTREMELY knowledgeable. He is absolutely wonderful and well worth the money!

David is a bright and multi-talented musician and teacher. He has shared his passion for music with my two daughters, teaching them piano. He is patient and kind. His approach strikes a perfect balance between imparting theory, technique and mechanics and being silly and having fun! Both of my daughters really enjoy him and look forward to their weekly lessons. The two girls are very different in their strengths, interests and personalities. He tailors his lessons to each of them to play to their strengths and tastes beautifully. And he is always positive and encouraging even when they are squirrely. I can't recommend him highly enough.

"As a beginning, self-taught bass player of four months, I wanted to find a teacher who could analyze and critique my playing. I scheduled five lessons with David over a time period of three months. David was instrumental in analyzing and critiquing bad techniques and habits I acquired. He very thoroughly emphasized proper fretting technique and finger positioning; exercises were given that helped me obtain full tonal quality and efficient fretboard navigation skills. We also reviewed basic theory, scale modes, rhythmic weight, pentatonics and arpeggios; seminal knowledge for the beginner.

A technical type player, David has excellent playing skills as well as a comprehensive knowledge of theory and its practical application. He is a good listener and showed a genuine interest in helping me achieve my goals. I definitely can see an improvement in my playing skills....playing more confidently and efficiently.

Highly recommended......."
